Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 This wide, wide world for Jesus,
With all its sins and woes,
Its anguish and diseases,
Its sorrows and its throes;
Though cursed and torn and blighted,
And sunken down in gloom,
God makes it, though benighted,
The kingdom of His Son.

2 Christ is our king and ruler,
Our hearts shall be His throne;
The Gospel’s great Revealer
Shall make us all His own;
We’ll sing His great salvation,
His triumph o’er His foes,
Till desert, land, and nation
Shall blossom as the rose.
